Custom EQ Question (FPS - COD)

Discussion in 'MixAmp Pro TR Custom EQ Presets' started by Kravenprime, Feb 7, 2019.

    Hi! I just picked up my first pair of Astro headsets. I got the A40 TR Headset + MixAmp™ Pro TR for the Xbox One X.

    My purpose for using them is primarily COD - Blackout for hearing footsteps/environment around me better.

    My friends were telling me about the Fusion Ultimate 5.15 A50 FPS Extreme... But I was also reading about the Fusion Ultimate FPS Extreme 5.91.

    I don't exactly know how to set my headset to this or what these mean - But I know I want the best sound config for my gaming experience.

    What is the difference between these two? Which one do you recommend so I can hear footsteps etc better/more distinctly?

    As a reference I was referring to:

    Best add them both to the mixamp and switch between them. Play with the in game sound eq too

    I have different headphones but I think 5.91 sounds better than 5.15 for multiplayer but I don't use either for blackout. They don't work well for me with that sound engine.

    What would you recommend using?

    When you say play with in game eq - what exactly does this mean? I appreciate the help!

    I have audio technical AD700 headphones (not 700x). Still testing but so far using either Dirtydevils AD700x profile or the stock Astro mix on the mixamp.

    Blackout has lots of Ambient noises and too much eq can drown out enemy sounds or create background noise.

    By in-game settings I mean go into Blackout choose options, Audio and try the different profiles like .Treyarch Mix, bass boost, high boost. Supercrunch works well for me

    Ah yes for sure.I have Master volume at 10, Supercrunch on, voice and music at 0 and SFX at 10.

    Will the AD700X profile work for my a40 TRs?
  8. AD700

    Any profile will work but I don't have the A40s anymore to say if it is best.

    You can put four profiles on the mixamp so add a few and switch between them whilst you play.

    I appreciate it. Is there any other profile I should check/try to see if it works well for blackout?
    Additionally - where could I find this ad700x profile?

    Thank you :)

    Cool.
    Is there an "extreme Fps" version?

    Not anymore as it isn’t necessary - FPS will do the job.

    Superstar! - I actually have the Original AD700 (rather than the 700x which was a bit inferior). How do you compare specs between AD700 and AD700x to see whether it would justify a tickle or two

    Inferior in what way because i only have a review graph to follow from 700x not 700 alone .

    I wouldn't think so unless you play in a very noisy environment.

    They are foam inserts and plastic covers to make them more like closed back headphones.

    The 700x was a budget successor to the 700. Mainly design changes but the 700x was slightly more bassy and a bit less sound stage so wasnt favoured as much.

    Thanks for looking though
